I've been interested in woodworking for many years, especially after watching my first episode of "The New Yankee Workshop". I'm finally at a time in my life where actually doing woodworking is a possibility. In the summer of 2009, I was recovering from two herniated discs in my lower back. I found a Fine Woodworking magazine special on introduction to woodworking at the book store which included an instructional DVD. I had an old bench from when I was a teenager that had most of the material to actually make the bench described in the magazine so I went for it. I should have read more about finishing before I just dove in but I have a functional, but blotchy woodworking bench complete with a side vise, bench dog holes and a nice shelf. I've been listening to and reading as much on woodworking as I can since then. I have recovered and went back to work which has put projects I wanted to build to a creeping crawl. Just learned sketchup and designed a rolling cabinet for my Ryobi(I know) contractor saw, which is my next project. I would love to turn the hobby in to a business for something to do and earn money before and when I retire from my current day job. Let the adventures begin.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a few months ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…

Wisty
